Certification of the recyclability of multilayer films containing polyamide expanded
Following the studies already conducted in 2021 on the recyclability of coextruded polyethylene/polyamide (PE/PA) multilayer films, the independent institute cyclos-HTP GmbH has completed further extensive investigations into the recyclability of multilayer films containing polyamide 6 (PA6) and ethyl vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymer. The subjects of the studies commissioned by BASF SE are coextruded PE/PA6/EVOH high-barrier films as well as and laminated PA6/PE films in household packaging waste.
